Philanthropic Fund accelerates good actions for the climate, benefiting society and preparing citizens

Talanoa is an International Institute of Public Policies whose objective is to accelerate good actions for the climate based on the collaboration of society, generating positive results for it. With the financial management of Sitawi, the Philanthropic Fund performs technical and economic analyses, plans and analyzes public policies and develops actions and tools to achieve its vision.

The Talanoa Institute acts as a ?policy think and do tank?, and is led by public administrator Natalie Unterstell. Think Tanks are institutions or organizations that produce knowledge on political, economic or scientific topics and are also responsible for disseminating these issues. This process is done through studies and articles, published with the aim of influencing public opinion.

Talanoa does this work with the vision of preparing citizens for a warmer world with a more uncertain climate. Currently, the institute develops the project Full Policy, which monitors in real time the political signs of relevant changes and their effects, announced or carried out by the Federal Executive. This is a way of building a technical analysis of political signals, in order to materialize and manage possible risks.

The fund has science- and collaboration-based solutions. It supports the formulation and implementation of public policies, advising governments so that there is innovation in their effectiveness. In addition, Talanoa also supports resilient investment strategies that consider climate and business risks. The institute also evaluates and monitors the performance of funds and public policy instruments and their governance on large scales.


The word Talanoa has its origins in the traditions of islands in the South Pacific, such as Fiji and Tonga, and its meaning refers to a process of dialogue that must be open, broad and interactive. These communities talk about difficult topics and jointly find solutions to common problems.
